An apparent bed bug bite ruined a movie-going experience for a Kansas City woman.

Stephanie Rodriguez posted on her Facebook timeline that she was enjoying a movie at the AMC Independence Commons 20 theater over the weekend - until she felt a bite on her lower back.

Her husband turned on a flashlight and they found what looked to be a bed bug in the seat.

And the bug bite left quite the welt on her skin.

Rodriguez says the theatre management took action as soon as she told them, not just giving her and her family some movie passes, but also isolated the row of seats.

She also alerted the Independence Health Department.
